Best Friday Night Fashion Event Ever: VMan Male Model World Cup
What's better on a balmy Friday night than hanging out at Chelsea Piers, sipping icy cocktails, and watching dozens of male models from New York's top agencies run around—shirtless and glistening with sweat—playing soccer? VMan sponsored its first hopefully-to-be-annual Male Model World Cup last Friday night. Request, VNY, Major, DNA, Ford, and New York Models all sent teams to represent."I came up with this idea actually at Mathias Lauridsen’s birthday dinner," VMan editor Jacob Brown told Models.com. "He was telling me about the league soccer he plays, and how so many of the guys are also very serious soccer players—a lot of them are from Europe and have played all their lives. One of us made a joke like, 'Oh wouldn’t it be funny if there was a big tournament where all the models competed.' And then I realized that it would actually be a perfect event for VMan to host."Oh, and in case you were wondering, the boys in blue—Hummel uniforms, all around—from Major Models won the VMan cup.

VMAN Male Model World Cup by Damien Neva
Pier 59, New York — The VMAN Male Model World Cup in the end was more fashion than football, but try telling that to the boys on the pitch fighting it out for top honors. Not even in the World Cup proper will you find participants averaging a height of 6’0 and as such there would have been no place for the likes of diminutive Leo Messi or Andrés Iniesta at the VMAN sponsored event.When all was said and done Team Ford Men finished third after beating VNY 3-1 in a the third-place play-off match. Major were crowned champions after beating a very good DNA side in the final. The winners will get a spread in a forthcoming issue of VMAN. Our guys regularly feature in VMAN so please don’t accuse us of sour grapes when we say our boys didn’t have proper motivation to win. OK? We’re fooling no one, aren’t we?We would like to give a big shout to VMAN for hosting the event, Mathias Lauridsen for conceiving it, JD Ferguson for emceeing the evening, and Hummel for kitting out all the players. If anyone at VMAN is up for it…I’d like to help organize the VMAN Male Model Euro Cup in 2012. I can also help get a proper DJ…we know one or two very well who would fit the bill.Special thanks to Marcus Warren over at CoaFA for contributing photos to this story.
